You will arrive @theland and take a tour of our 3 acre plot. We will go through some basic safety information (approx 10mins).

During the pig & chicken experience you will gain knowledge about each of our pigs, their breed and their story. We will introduce the chickens and explain about their background and breed too. We will introduce you to our pigs and you will get to groom them. We will show you how to change the pigs bed and manage it to ensure they are warm and comfortable.

You will be shown how to bring hold a chicken (photo opportunity) and how to check their feathers and general wellbeing. The chickens will also benefit from a small tidy up in their hen house and you will collect their eggs for the day. These eggs will need dating and storing ready for you to take home. We will feed the hens and discussing their diet (approx 15/20min
Other things to note
These animals are well looked after and all sessions are private so its not overwhelming for the animals or guests during the session. I also stay with guests during the whole session so you wont be left alone with animals if you don't feel confident around them.

  • Identity verified
I am a land owner in Meriden who has spent over 25 years riding and caring for horses. Since purchasing the land over 6 years ago I have made it a home for horses, pigs, chickens and bees. As a qualified food teacher, dressage riding competitor and bee keeper I like to educate others, pass on my knowledge and passion for all my animals including pigs and chickens. Our pigs are sisters and are very approachable. We allow you in the pen with them to get up close and groom them and learn about their story. Our chickens are rescue chickens are also are happy to be held. My love for the environment and natural habitats is important and I hope others feel as enthused after an experience @theland.
